Southampton's major sectors for employment

As might be expected from a port city, the Transport and Storage Sector is strong in Southampton - accounting for 6.7% of all the area's employment according to the 2011 Census (the average figure in this sector for England is 5%). Major transportation employers in the Southampton area include P&O Cruises, Southampton Airport, and Associated British Ports (ABP). The Port of Southampton is the UK's busiest cruise terminal, and second largest container port.

Other major employers in Southampton include the investment firm Old Mutual Wealth, the University of Southampton (a member of the prestigious Russell Group), and BBC South - which is based at the corporation's studios on Havelock Road.

Transport links around Southampton and the Solent

Clearly, Southampton is a successful port city - with cruises, cargo ships and ferries leaving for destinations around the globe on a daily basis. Coupled with its airport - which offers travel to destinations including Jersey, Paris, and Antwerp, the city enjoys some of the best global travel links in the south of England outside of the capital.

One reason for Southampton's success as a port has always been its proximity to London, which is around one hour and forty minutes' drive on the M3 motorway outside of peak times. Direct trains are also available which will carry passengers to London in around one hour and twenty minutes. The city's relative proximity to the M4 motorway means that inter-city road travel around Britain is feasible from Southampton, despite its southerly nature.
